Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the new, bright shining star of the Democratic Party is pretty much guaranteed to win her congressional race in November, yet she still continues to pursue her fifteen minutes of fame in the public eye by making the rounds in the press delivering embarrassingly incoherent statements and just in general making a fool of herself.
In order to continue winning over the radical element of the Democratic Party — claiming to be socialist isn’t cutting it these days — she’s added yet another controversial and extremely dangerous element to her agenda: eliminating the Electoral College.
Over the weekend, “the future” of the Democratic Party announced that it was time to consign the Electoral College to the dustbin of history because it was a “relic” of America’s racist past. The confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh prompted the declaration.Advertisement - story continues below
GQ Magazine’s Julia Ioffe noted that “two presidents who both lost the popular vote have now placed four justices on the Supreme Court.”
We are a country where two presidents who both lost the popular vote have now placed four justices on the Supreme Court. Democracy in action.

“It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

This isn’t the only idiotic piece of Ocasio-Cortez’s platform. Check these out and try not to let your eyes bleed:
Medicare For All
Improved and Expanded Medicare for All is the ethical, logical, and affordable path to ensuring no person goes without dignified healthcare. Medicare for All will reduce the existing costs of healthcare (and make Medicare cheaper, too!) by allowing all people in the US to buy into a universal healthcare system. What’s even better is that Improved and Expanded Medicare for All includes full vision, dental, and mental healthcare – because we know that true healthcare is about the whole self, not just your yearly physical….
A Federal Jobs Guarantee
Alexandria endorses a Federal Jobs Guarantee, because anyone who is willing and able to work shouldn’t struggle to find employment. A Federal Jobs Guarantee would create a baseline standard for employment that includes a $15 minimum wage (pegged to inflation), full healthcare, and child and sick leave for all. This proposal would dramatically upgrade the quality of employment in the United States, by providing training and experience to workers while bringing much-needed public services to our communities in areas such as parks service, childcare and environmental conservation….Advertisement - story continues below
Higher Education / Trade School For All
Roughly every 100 years, the United States expands its public education system to match its increasingly advanced economy. It’s now time to expand our national education system to include tuition-free public college and trade school….
Immigration Justice / Abolish ICE
It’s time to abolish ICE, clear the path to citizenship, and protect the rights of families to remain together….
What’s even more tragic and despair inducing about Ocasio-Cortez is the fact that so many brainwashed young people are devouring every word of her platform, failing to pass her ideas under the microscopic scrutiny of common sense. That and an in-depth study of history would open their eyes to the reality that socialism has never worked and will never work.
Let’s hope folks start waking up and not falling for these educated idiots and the nonsense they spew. It’s time for Americans to start thinking for themselves again.
